I think by now everyone has heard that former DMR Executive Director Bill Walker is back in the pokey, after failing to make his court ordered restitution. Going back through Slabbed’s extensive archives on the Mississippi DMR friends and family scandal takes us all the way back to 2012 which is amazing. Time sure does fly! That said it was late last year when the public found out first hand exactly the type of boss Walker was during his days running DMR because this was no ordinary white collar crime scandal by any stretch of the imagination. Those interested in learning more can follow this tag for Slabbed’s archival coverage of the criminal investigation.
Some of the monthly expenses Bill Walker claims, according to the government:
▪ $3,322 for a mortgage
▪ $1,938 in car notes for a Mercedes Benz, a Yukon and a Land Rover that Scott Walker drives
So there you it have folks, Bill and wife have a $16,000 a month income and yet can’t afford to make his restitution payments. Even better we gotta now wonder who is lying, Bill to the government or Scott to the media?
Scott Walker told the Sun Herald after the hearing that he is paying for the Land Rover.
Back in 2016 it was Scott that posted his interest in purchasing the Land Rover on Facebook. Maybe the probation officer will have that matter clarified because someone is lying here.
I’ve received a good bit of email and such on this latest turn of events so I imagine the commenting community will have plenty to add. The sentencing hearing for Bill Walker is set for October 1st.
